Forgetful and Knit Corsham

Hey everybody!
... sorry. It has been a really busy two months personally. I haven't even really had a chance to crochet, let alone do any yarn bombs.
But! I am going to Vancouver over the weekend, so hopefully that will give me a chance to get some yarn bombing done there! I just love tagging in other cities.

And to do a brief catchup, does anyone remember when I was talking about Knit Corsham? It was around international yarnbombing day (I believe the event coincided, but went on for more days than just IYBD). Anyway, I never did show everyone what my piece that I sent them looked like.

See, I mailed this lovely coral reef bike rack cover all the way to the UK! I love doing yarn bombs around the world, because it is something that I have worked hard on being seen in a part of the world I have never been! (ok, I have been to Scotland and England, but I was very wee and obviously do not remember any of it) Apparently it was well received. That always makes me happy.

There were tons of pieces for the Knit Corsham festival. I suggest you google it or check out the various yarn forums if you wanna take a look at all the pictures.

It was so much fun. I keep thinking about organizing some sort of gran event where I ask for donations from people in the form of bombs, but I don't have the time between work and school. Hopefully some day I can! In the mean time, participating in events like this one are marvelous. Thanks goes out to Sandie Roach who got me involved in the project and special thanks to everyone who made the project happen.
